Tough times lead to tough prenups


If you are getting married, these economically troubled times call for tough prenuptial agreements.

Prenups for people of all ages are becoming increasingly common, says Marlene Eskind Moses, president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a family law practitioner in Nashville. More than 73% of members of the AAML say they've seen an uptick in clients seeking prenuptial agreements with at least half of them initiated by women.
